5 years down...forever to go!

Wendover, NV

Let me explain...
3 years ago, (before we had children), Robert and I went to Wendover, NV with some friends who took care of our hotel and food. (free vacation!!!) i will admit...we gambled a teeny tiny bit playing blackjack.
for our anniversary this year we had NO plans. we wanted to do something, but didn't want to spend money or travel far. a week before our anniversary (March 25th) we got a letter in the mail from Wendover's casino's. They wanted us back, so they gave us 2 free complimentary nights at one of their hotels PLUS $150 in "free play". So, we decided to take their generous offer.
We could use the $150 "free play" money in slot machines and only keep the WINNINGS off of it. We played the system and cashed out everytime we made money. We played the slot machines (or acted like we knew what we were doing like the rest of the 65 year olds there) and we made $90 dollars!
So, we went to Wendover, NV because of the 2 free nights and made $90 without gambling a dime of our own money!
Not bad!

While we were there, we also enjoyed the pool and hot tubs and of course...the buffet!

Can you be MAD at the person you love MOST?

My loving husband signed me up for the Ragnar Relay Race in June. I'm not sure how much I have to run yet, but it will be somewhere between 3-8 miles...3 times during the race.
For fun and for my own pleasure/pain, I am going to keep track of how many miles I have ran from today until my race day. (my tracker will be in the right hand column)
Wish me luck, and say your farwells. I have been given 3 months to live by my sweet husband.
I love him, but I don't have to like him right now...

Am I really this lame?

All I do all day is read...SERIOUSLY...
These following books have been and will continue to be my entertainment:
#1 The Book of Mormon
This is the first book I read to start off my day. I have a personal goal to finish it in a couple months. So far, so good!!!

Book #2 Gospel Principles
Since I teach Relief Society monthly, this is a book I read/study from every month. I am currently reading Chapter 6, if you have any teaching suggestions...COMMENT ON MY BLOG!

Book #3 The Lost Symbol

This is an interesting book...this is one of the books I get lost in while my 2 sweet boys take a nap during the day. This book has a few BIG words for me so I really have to concentrate to read it:)

Book #4 Two for the Dough
I LOVE murder mystery type books. yes. I am sick and twisted like that. This is my easy read. It's the kind of book that I can read while my kids are awake and running around me and yelling at me for juice or chocolate milk or yelling at me to put on a movie or yelling at me to play the computer. Yes, this is a book that I try and tune the above yelling out with.

And that's my post for the month! Boys are still sleeping so off I go to book #3.
